Shinare's Avatars: Shinare most often assumes the guise of a rich, portly matron or merchant. She wears expensive clothing and jewelry, and a belt of finest silver encircles her waist. When appearing to the dwarves, she takes the form of a male dwarven merchant, decked in rich clothing that drips with gems and precious metals. Because dwarves so espouses her philosophies, she acquiesces to their stubborn insistence that she is male. Mortal gender should not stand in the way of progress.
